  • The former priory of Saint-Etienne is one of the best-kept secrets of the Guer countryside. It's a little jewel of Romanesque art, and its chapel, full of astonishing colours, is the oldest chapel in Morbihan.

    You have to walk a little way to find this well-hidden treasure from the 12th century, but the path up to the top of the Oyon valley is worth its weight in gold. Appearances can be deceptive, that's for sure!. Patience is a virtue… Look at these strange Roman bricks on the outside. Now, open the doors. And your curiosity is rewarded!! The chapel has carefully preserved many traces of Gallo-Roman times, objects of worship, a beautiful altar piece and some remarkable statues made from wood of various hues. Its coloured murals dating back to the 15th century are its pièce de resistance. The site is a listed historic monument, and it has been carefully restored and given a new lease of life by volunteer workers who fell in love with the place. In summer, the charitable association of Les Lands gives daily guided tours. From time to time it organises other events ranging from classical music concerts to film shows. If you've never experienced medieval illuminations … this is your chance.
